Despite Laura Kukuk being only 28 years old, she is well on her way to establishing herself as a leading expert in the niche of classic and supercar surveys.
Kukuk travels the world with her father Klaus, as they perform forensic pre-purchase inspections on rare and highly coveted vintage and modern collectible cars. To the finest details of the vehicles, they research their provenance, condition, and originality.
Her favorite way to unwind is to go on a road trip to offset the intensities of work. It is not surprising to find the German engineer with her small group of friends heading to the Southern Alps.
In 2019, Kukuk decided to take road trips to the next level. She shared:
“There are so many great driving events, but most of them are unaffordable for me. I always go out driving with friends in the summertime, so I thought why not arrange something yourself? I’m someone who thinks if you have an idea, just have a go. So, I suggested it on social media, and people were crazy about it.”
A section of the journey Kukuk recommended was the Sella Ronda. It is a high-altitude rollercoaster that wanders through the Dolomites, now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It is a must bucket-list winter destination for serious skiers, while in the summer, it attracts committed mountain bikers. However, at the suitable time of year, the surrounding roads can certainly provide some memorable alpine driving.
“My dad used to drive it when I was five- or six-years-old. He had an F-model 911 from 1966 that he drove daily, and we used to go skiing in it. We’d simply put all the skis on it and just go driving; me, my brother and my dad. And we’d always take cool routes like this.
